    Gosh, I love you guys, giving me so much company. Keeps me motivated

    davekang: Thanks a lot man. Hopefully I can keep you coming back!

    p sage: lmfao. That gave me a good laugh Of "great" comic book inks? Im flattered! I don't think im on that level yet, heh. Those guys are true masters. Thanks a lot!!

    ditchman: Thanks a lot mate!

    Cacodaemonia: Thank you. Yeah, she was quite excited to be outside the front of the house, haha. All the kids were in the street that day. Thanks about the inks too

    Ohhhkay. So I had a drawing from a bit ago of some girl with horns on her head, and I dont know why, but I started painting it. Started by inking her like i did the last piece, but keeping in mind that I wanted to render elements too. Also leaving the pencil in there for texture. Then i went in with a base color and layed it downzzz, and actually blocked in the shadows with a hard brush, then blended it kinda, with a oily type brush. Still going.

    Just typing this all out for myself, kind of like a process record, to see how i was thinking. because this is too much fun to forget,

    nice, the balance looks a lot better - I'm not to keen on the blurry elements though

    I agree with ditchann - the blurred parts don't work for me, especially since I can still see some pencil texture or jpeg compression in the design parts. The image as a whole is quite crisp and high-contrast, so I would suggest tightening up all the blurred areas and letting the image be a bit more flat.

    ditchman: Thank you. I've always loved the digital blur look. Personal preference thing I guess.

    Cacodaemonia: Ah. As I said to ditch, its more of a pref thing to use that blur. I've always liked the look. And about the pencil, I actually left it in for texture. I think I should make the blur more gradual though. That would make it look more subtle and less like i just slapped the filter on top.

    Erk. I should be asleep. But I slept all day due to a migrane...that I still have =.=

    Anyways, just a page of studies, as i left the others at my friends house (I use a clipboard instead of a sketchbook). And a little painting thing for tonight. I was looking through my SB and saw a post where Clochette told me I should do the whole "less is more" approach. Since I had added a super busy background to a piece. So heres to that, lol. Im further along, but SAI doesn't want to save as my computers low on memory, so this is what i saved last...too lazy to reset Chrome.

    Okayyyy. I really have to stop updating in the middle of the night. No one sees!

    Yeah, so I have my sketch thing finished now. I saved 2 versions. One with texture and some shape on the tree, and another with it flat. Not too sure not too sure. I like elements from both and I think i should take a little from both and find a healthy balance. I would love to get opinions guys. Thanks

    Nice studies... and the chick with the split face in a tree looks cool. Perspective on her dress looks a little strange, though. It's shaped like a cone... you could probably easily work that out.

    I prefer the second one, though I'm not a huge fan of the red shadows on the branch - they're quite distracting, since there isn't much red elsewhere in the image. The witch design is quite cool. Also, I think she needs to be casting more of a shadow on the branch.

    Thanks you two.
    p sage. What exactly do you mean about the dress? I mean, it IS cone shaped, do you mean its leaning back too much or something?

    Cacodaemonia: Yeah. See, I tried to get the red into the highlight of the dress a little bit. But I guess not enough. Do you think If i went back in and added some like accessories to the dress, that would balance it out? And you're totally right about the shadow. Not too sure If I want to add it though. For 'design' reasons. As I wasn't really going for accuracy.

    Wow, i'm really starting to sound like i'm giving a billion excuses...o.o; Sorry guys. I really AM taking in what you say, and applying it to my new work. But i'm also going against the flow to try some strange things in my pieces now. Maybe I'll get back on track soon, maybe I'm totally derailed, haha. Who knows. But everything you say, I take in. So thank you. (I dont want you all running around thinking im ungrateful, because thats not the case at all)

    Without seeing the ground plane, it's hard to say. If you look just at the girl, the dress looks ok. But seeing it in context of the branch and the moon only, it looks like the perspective is off.

    What I mean by cone is that cones are simple to draw in perspective. Since the dress is of that shape, it should be a simple fix.

    Then again, maybe once the ground-plane is in it will look better.

    Yeah, maybe some darker red touches on the outfit would help.

    I like what you're doing with the skin tones in this latest one.
